Laguna Beach is a small coastal city in Orange County, California. It’s known for its many art galleries, coves and beaches. Main Beach features tide pools and a boardwalk leading to the paths and gardens of nearby Heisler Park. Aliso Beach Park is a popular surf spot. The waters off Crystal Cove State Park are designated as an underwater park. Trails meander through coastal canyons in Laguna Coast Wilderness Park.
The Crystal Cove State Park is comprised of 3.5 miles of pristine uninterrupted coastline, favored by hikers, campers and trailblazers. The Crystal Cove Historic District is an enclave of 46 vintage rustic coastal cottages originally built in the 1920s and 1930s nestled around the mouth of Los Trancos Creek. It is one of the last remaining examples of early 20th century Southern California coastal development. The Crystal Cove beach cottages are located right on the sand and available for visitors to rent. The only caveat in booking a reservation is they fill up quickly and require being booked six months ahead. Stop in at the popular beachfront Beachcomber Cafe at Crystal Cove in Newport Beach and join them daily at 5 pm and again at sunset as they play Reveille and salute the martini flag.
